Drool Worthy: Michael Bastian 'Charlie Brown' SweaterTuesday, September 11, 2012Aaron Reese
"You're a good man Charlie Brown." Those words have sparked infinite inspiration, like the 1971 Broadway musical bearing the same name, and as of late my menswear crush, Michael Bastian. Sir Bastian has been one of the most precedent influencers in menswear trends, and here is no exception. The novelty sweater, as seen in both menswear and womenswear has been making quite the splash! They are whimsical, festive and the ultimate must have for the fall. If you want to stylishly explore your inner geek, with less emphasis on the geek this is the ideal piece.
I'm a sucker for nostalgia on the runway, so it shouldn't surprise you why I fell for this little guy upon first sight. I grew up on Charlie Brown. Heck who didn't?! The Charlie Brown piece is Italian crafted cashmere, with a classic crew neck design perfect for layering. This is a fun spin on americana, and a nice ode to some of our childhood faves. Well done MB!
Now a drool worthy post wouldn't be drool worthy if I didn't express how much I NEED this piece in my closet. So with that being said, if I get this sweater (which is available on Mr. Porter for $995.00) you'll get to see me doing this little number below!
